"Mary Magdalene in Art"

Past Live Lecture on May 9 2022 with Liz Lev

Come and Discover:


Few figures have had as many guises as Mary Magdalene.

Like the most versatile of actors, she has transformed from sultry siren to emaciated ascetic to refined intellectual over the 1500 years of her recorded depictions.

This talk will look at how artists have exalted this exceptional woman through some of her most fascinating depictions, explore some of the controversies surrounding her, and reveal why she is even more important as a model for women today than ever before.

The lecture has been recorded for you!
